“The problem is that legislators allow themselves to be swayed by the [Catholic] church. They forget that they were elected into office by Filipino people for them to pass laws that will be good for everyone.”

    The problem of electing believers, regardless of their particular brand of idolatry. Legislators who put their religious beliefs ahead of the good of their constituents have betrayed their nation and oaths no less than if they had sold military secrets to an enemy. It is treason whether it is in response to the call of ideology or god, and should be treated as such.
